Herbert West: Reanimator - Part 3 - Six Shots By Moonlight by H. P. Lovecraft




This a Forbidden Dragon recording. Read by Marlo Dianne.

Part III of VI (3 of 6).

It is uncommon to fire all six shots of a revolver with great suddenness when one would probably be sufficient, but many things in the life of Herbert West were uncommon. It is, for instance, not often that a young physician leaving college is obliged to conceal the principles which guide his selection of a home and office, yet that was the case with Herbert West. When he and I obtained our degrees at the medical school of Miskatonic University, and sought to relieve our poverty by setting up as general practitioners, we took great care not to say that we chose our house because it was fairly well isolated, and as near as possible to the potter√Ęs field...

Convinced that death is merely mechanical failure, and that they can find a chemical mechanism to reboot the machine, West and our nameless narrator, are on the hunt for bodies--the fresher, the better. Through graveyards and laboratories, they want to find death, chase it, trap it, prod it, and defeat it. But when you chase something to within arm's reach, it can reach back...

Published in 1922 as a six part serial, Herbert West: Reanimator is a classic story of sci-fi and horror by H. P. Lovecraft. Atmosphere, language, and science blend effortlessly, timeless in this gruesome tale of a doctor of death.
